October 15th is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in the United States. Each year, over half a million dreams are shattered. Out of 3.3 million born alive, some 30,000 die during the first 28 days. Another 39,000 babies are still born. Miscarriage occurs in fifteen to twenty percent of pregnancies, while ectopic pregnancy occurs in one percent.
On October 15th, remember the thousands of unfinished children lost and the families who remain to grieve them. If everyone lights a candle at 7pm and keeps it burning for at least an hour, we will create a continuous wave of light over the entire world today.
I'm lighting my candle to remember our 2 angels and all babies taken too soon.
